Giti truck tyres hit the track at Brands Hatch

Overall, Stuart Oliver’s Giti-shod Volvo VNL race truck enjoyed a good start to the season

For the third consecutive year, Giti Tire is bringing is truck tyre technology to the track. Its truck racing presence kicked off this year with an appearance at Brands Hatch Circuit over the Easter weekend.

The Team Oliver satin-black Volvo VNL race truck achieved strong overall results to kick off its season. At the helm of the Giti #7 branded truck was renowned driver Stuart Oliver, a ten-time British champion who’s also achieved wins in the USA at Pikes Peak, India, and elsewhere in Europe. Oliver and his vehicle utilised the newly-adapted Volvo engine for the first time, and found strong performance from it and the vehicle’s Giti tyres. The #7 truck occupied third place throughout much of the weekend, and while a multi-truck collision late in the race prevented the Giti vehicle from completing the competition, Giti Tire comments that the performance of both the truck and tyres left the team pleased overall and ready for future races.

Giti Tire says the specially-designed GitiCompete Race-Tuned V1 tyres are tuned through extensive development and testing. They utilise technology that adapts Giti’s commercial truck tyres to truck racing environments. In-turn, the results and data analysis from these highly intensive racing environments also help to improve Giti’s technology for all types of truck driving.

The action in 2019 is the third year of truck tyre racing for Giti Tire, an engagement it hopes will promote the global growth of the Giti brand. Giti competition truck tyres debuted in 2017 at the Super Truck Nationals in Australia. Giti’s involvement widened the following year to include participation in the British Truck Racing Association (BRTA), which took the GitiCompete tyre to some of the toughest tracks in the UK, Germany, and Belgium.
